37: The CGI Dog-Man Cometh

The Red Pyramid, ch. 1 to 4

Summer camp? Greek gods? Fashy pisshorses? Shut up about all that nonsense and get on the boat, loser – it’s time for our river tour of The Kane Chronicles to begin! This week, the Unwise Girls start on a whole new series, covering Rick Riordan’s first Egyptian myth-based book: The Red Pyramid. We get into the struggles of having to introduce a whole new world to readers, British people being racist, exactly one Ankha meme joke before Jacqueline bans Jane from them forever, how Napoleon’s epic fail impacts the relevant text, some seed-planting that both frustrates and intrigues us, and the exact job duties of an Egyptologist. Plus, Jane makes a theory so immature that it just might be right!

Come back next week for The Red Pyramid, ch. 5 to 8!
